1953 Oldsmobile Fiesta Convertible by Brooklin Models

One defining event of 50s American car culture was GM’s Motorama, a no-holds-barred display of dazzling technology and stunning styling. A series of dramatic styling exercises captivated the public, but most were not for sale. For 1953, the GM made an exception, offering three of the previous year’s “dream cars” in limited-production numbers: Cadillac Eldorado, Buick Skylark and Oldsmobile Fiesta. Scarcest of these was the Oldsmobile Fiesta, a limited-edition custom convertible created from the top of the line Oldsmobile 98 , a stunning design that pioneered several features at Oldsmobile, including a wraparound windshield, exterior trim, “spinner” wheel covers, which became a trademark on later Oldsmobile , attractive two-tone paint schemes in exclusive colors and a very high level of standard equipment.
Fiesta was the most luxurious and most powerful Oldsmobile offered in 1953. With a price tag of $5,715 back in 1953, it‘s easy to see why only 458 were built. It was also the most expensive-nearly twice the price of the 98 model convertible on which it was based. The Fiesta‘s influence would be seen and felt for years to come.

This beautifull early Brooklin fully captures the Oldsmobile 1953 „dream car“ in the shape of stunning turquoise blue and white baroque cloud.
The car has styling with „hockey-stick“ side trim, wraparound Panoramic windshield, beautifully modeled chrome bumpers, chrome stone guards, jet hood ornament, fender skirts, spinner hubcaps, white convertible top boot and rear-mounted Continental kit spare. It is a pity that fender mounted antenna and door handles are molded only-
The model was due to extravagant shape soon completely sold out and is now is very rare.
